On Google I see that there is confusion on SAKA ERA . Kanishka started it, Sakas started it, Shalivahan started it?
Both Vikrama and Shalivahan (Saka) era were supposedly started when kings defeated the Sakas.
The rÄá¹£á¹rakÅ«á¹a-s had the biggest empire after the gupta-s. They were fighting from north Kerala to Kannauj at one time. Though their campaign in the north Tamilnadu must be a brief one. In the early 10th century the Chola-s weren't the power they would be under rÄjarÄja chola.
Saka era used in South but North India uses the Vikram Samvat. Nepal also has Vikram Samvat.
